An unmodified and completely standard Mazda MX-5 has completed laps at Anglesey Circuit in Wales, Oulton Park in England, Knockhill in Scotland, and Kirkistown in Northern Ireland while using sustainable road fuel from bespoke fuel supplier Coryton.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How many kilometers did the alternative fuel-powered Mazda MX-5 travel?

    Per Mazda, the vehicle traveled around 1,609km around United Kingdom.
  • What company supplied the sustainable fuel used by the Mazda MX-5?

    The sustainable fuel used by the Mazda MX-5 was supplied by Coryton.
  • The stock Mazda MX-5 reportedly covered around 1,609 kilometers (km) around the United Kingdom (UK) from circuit to circuit on sustainable petrol.

    “This is a brilliant demonstration of how sustainable fuels can play a part in reducing automotive CO2 emissions if they became widely available. In line with Mazda’s position on renewable e-fuels, I’m delighted that with this activity here in the UK we have helped to increase discussion and awareness on the part sustainable fuels can play alongside electrification in reducing emissions from vehicles,” commented Mazda Motors UK Managing Director Jeremy Thomson.

    Thomson added, “it’s especially appropriate to highlight how they have the potential to make the enjoyment of driving sustainable whether on the road or on track for fun or in competition — all of which is key to a car like the Mazda MX-5 that has been providing driving fun for over 30 years. I hope this demonstration will be a forerunner of bigger and better things to come, this pioneering approach is very much in line with Mazda’s famed Challenger Spirit.”

    The Mazda MX-5 drove from Coryton HQ in Essex, via Motorsport UK HQ in Bicester, before completing the tour of the four UK circuits. The completely unmodified MX-5’s performance, economy, and engine character were unchanged by sustainable road fuel supplied by Coryton.

    “We’re delighted to have worked with Mazda UK on this project, which combined a great car with sustainable fuel to lower more than just lap times. As this challenge has shown, sustainable fuel is a real and credible player in our efforts toward net zero. It's a solution that performs incredibly well, works with our existing vehicles, and has the potential to significantly reduce the amount of CO2 we currently release compared to traditional fossil fuels,” said Coryton Director David Richardson.
